12 - LabSat SatGen v2 Software
SatGen v2 software is a powerful tool for defining and creating RF playback scenario files for use with the LabSat Simulator. For many applications LabSat can record and playback real world, live sky data, but there may be times when you need a more controlled, user definable signal. When this is the case, SatGen v2 provides all of the tools necessary to create a predictable, stable and accurate output from LabSat. SatGen v2 has the distinct advantage of allowing for the creation of scenarios with any dynamics, location, date or time.
Why use SatGen v2 software?
You might be based in Europe, but your GPS devices will be deployed throughout the world. With SatGen v2 you can create a test scenario based on a user-generated trajectory file for virtually any location, including hostile areas for which live-sky field testing might be impossible. This allows you to verify that your GPS equipment design performs as required, in a variety of locations that may be geographically remote from your facility. It also means the same scenario can be replayed repeatedly to see how the device under test (DUT) performs.
Of course, LabSat can record and replay live data, but creating an artificial scenario allows you to precisely control the data content, and create a ‘gold standard’ file for carrying out true comparisons between receivers. From your bench you can try different acceleration levels, crossing different time zones, the equator, leap second roll-overs and many hard to replicate tests.
Artificial scenario files can easily be created from a static position, draw a route, import a file (NMEA, Google.kml, Video VBOX.vbo) and user defined instructions with inclusive pre defined examples.
